For man's survival all we really need to have is food, water, shelter and a few tools. But most often, money has turned out to be a much needed source to live in a world that's filled with materialistic things. This materialistic world can destroy relationships and can pull souls from the truth of why we are placed here on this earth. We tend to sometimes forget what life is all about and the simpler things in life. When people are too focused on having more money all the time, it can cause the flow of good energy to turn into a negative energy.
The rich folk only want to get richer and many start to hoard what they have and forget there is a whole world of people who have nothing at all. People also have not yet recognized that some of the rich who have the most things or who have the most toys are usually the unhappiest and most unfriendly people walking on our planet.
God wants us to live a life that is very abundant and full of life. He doesn't mind if we have these materialistic things, but at the same time we have all this, He wants us to remember the importance of love. When we continuously get all wrapped up in having to need and want more, we get into another vicious cycle of forgetting about the people around us, and we seem to get all wrapped up into the everday stresses of life again. It's all related to money. Anything we do or want, you need money for. As humans we seem to forget that there once was a day when mankind didn't need so much. if we had our families, some food to eat and a small roof over our heads, we were happy.
These days money causes too much fighting. Many marriages are destroyed by there not being enough money. Some people spend more than they can afford and this again becomes a vicious cycle. Do not spend more money than you have. Save for a riany day. Don't let money get in the way of a relationship. It's not worth it. If you're in a relationship with someone today and if you're fighting about money, ask youself if any of this is going to matter in 10 years or 100 years. If you're over your budget, find a way to clean it up and start over and start fresh. Don't let money cause fights; don't let money cause murders; don't let money cause any more pain. We need peace on earth; no more fighting.
If you are well to do and have a lot of money, help others who could use it for food or better shelter. If you give more, you will receive more.
Parents, teach your children how to start saving money at a very young age. Give them allowances for helping with chores aroud the house; let them purchase stuff they want with this money. This teaches them how hard money is to come by. Teach them the value of money and that they need to earn it. It's ok to spoil your kids once in a while, but don't spoil them by buying things for them every time you go to the store. If you are buying your kids something every time they complain at the store just to quiet them, this is going to cause you a lot more deeper and bigger prolems down the road. If your kids won't quiet down, then you need to teach them that they need to learn more respect for you and that they won't get everything they want every time they want it. Tell them "No" a couple of times and they'll get the message really quick.
